2012 Bass Pro Shops Southern Open #3 Smith Lake – Jasper, AL – Final Day

Date:

Cherry by an ounce at Smith Lake

Hank Cherry

Hank Cherry of Maiden, N.C., seized victory at Smith Lake by an ounce, earning him a berth in the 2013 Bassmaster Classic on Grand Lake, Okla., Feb 22-24.

Bass fishing has been called a sport of ounces, but today at the season finale of the Bass Pro Shops Bassmaster Southern Open series on Alabama’s Lewis Smith Lake, a single ounce made all the difference. That’s all that separated North Carolina’s Hank Cherry from local favorite Craig Daniel. In the end, Cherry’s 38 pounds, 13 ounces were just enough for the win.

Few tournaments offer such a diversity of fishing methods. At Smith Lake, top finishers were catching bass on top, on the bottom in 40 feet of water and everywhere in between. They were using topwater baits, drop shot rigs, jerkbaits and jigs. In the end, though, it was North Carolina’s Hank Cherry and his unconventional light-line swimbait technique that carried the day, earning him the win and a berth in the 2013 Bassmaster Classic on Grand Lake, Okla., Feb 22-24.
